Jean-Michel Degrange, France coach
We had problems with the weather today. The Colombians seemed to adapt better to the weather than we did. Especially in the last few minutes, they coped far better than us. I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Colombia players for the way they fought right to the end.
Ricardo Rozo, Colombia coach
I’m happy with the result. The French goal had a significant impact on us. In the second half, we tried to get on the attack more often, and we were rewarded for that. That’s a good result for us, as we have Germany up next. I wanted us to play at a higher pace than that. We’ll need to up the pace considerably against Germany.
Audrey Fevrier, France captain
Colombia put us under a lot of pressure in the second half. Their equaliser hit us hard. The Colombians had a lot of pace up front and they were dominating the match at the end. Shortly before the final whistle, we simply had nothing left to give.
